Salmon Cakes...In A Salad?

Updated on August 29, 2017

Salmon Cakes...In A Salad

Are you tired of last night's left-overs?

Not craving another greasy double-decker?

Sick of Chinese, the local carryout, and those noodles in a cup?

Want something that will help with the struggle between your taste buds, time, and calories?

Care to intrigued your taste-buds?

Dare to tantalize your stomach?

Interested in satisfying your hunger?

Well Skip the Golden Arches, the Burger King, and the Checkers, bypass Wendy's, The Colonel, and Popeye's.

Instead head to the nearest grocery store, grab a cart and get the following...


One can of Tulip Wild Alaska Pink Salmon (or any other brand )

Vegetable oil for frying




Seasonings (Old Bay, Lemon Pepper, Garlic powder, & Onion Powder)

A bag of lettuce (iceberg/romain)





Head home; pull out the frying pan, a salad bowl and mixing bowl; a paper towel-lined plate and the cutting board

let's get it started!

Start with the lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, and carrots and rinse them off thoroughly in cool water.

Following that, take the lettuce and pull off a desirable amount for your salad; chop up the cucumbers, tomatoes, and carrots to your liking. Place items in the bowl and sit it in the fridge to cool while you prepare the rest of the meal.

Open the can of Salmon in the sink

Drain the liquid out of the can (like you would do when draining tuna fish)

Carefully remove the salmon from the can

Do not crumble! (for the process of removing bones will be a lot harder)

Crack the salmon open down the middle and extract the bones

Then mash the salmon with a fork.

Next, add seasonings, one squirt of mustard, and approximately 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise

Mix everything together and then add an egg

Mix it up again and allow it to marinate while the grease warms up

On the stove, place a large frying pan with enough grease to cover the pan

Allow the grease to heat up (failure to do so will saturate your cakes in grease before they cook...Yuck!)

Test to see if the grease is hot enough, by taking a tiny piece of the mixture (less than a dime size) and dropping it in the grease; if it sizzles immediately it is hot and ready to go.

Form the mixture into patties (palm size)

Carefully place the patties into the grease about an inch apart

Allow them to fry till golden brown, then flip to the other side (approx. 4mins per side)

Once they are golden brown, remove them from the grease to the plate lined with the paper-towel

Allow them to cool

Take out the bowl of salad, place two cooled salmon patties on top

Grab the lemon, cut it up and give the salad a few squirts before adding the dressing

Add the dressing, grab the fork and enjoy!

Fork me your thoughts on how you spruce up your salads, or how you make your salmon cakes
